    Hopefully the Brazilian lads back Wednesday afternoon/night by private Jet after 2nd game in the USA

    Thinking Firmino still could be rested with maybe Shaqiri starting .

    I would start firmino especially after him scoring against USA. Hopefully the England lads won’t play 90 minutes. I think our team will be fresher where Tottenham looked leggy against Watford

    First goal in this game is key. I would start bobby for sure. 2 goals in his last 2 games so he will be full on confidence.no reason why we can’t beat these. They looked shattered against watford and ran out of ideas.

    There's a part of me that is happy that this game is away, week after international games is always a funny one and we're probably statistically likely to drop points this game either way but I don't think it jeopradises anything for us this season overall. If it's a home game against them we need a win or pressure cranks up.

    We can win this game but a draw is an excellent result too against a very strong team. A loss won't matter at the end of the season either, this is a very tough fixture for everyone.

    At the same time the equivalent fixture last season was Man City away at 12:30 after the same international break and we lost 5-0 with Mané getting sent off and banned, definitely affected our season that game.

    But I think we're much better equipped for this one. Interesting to see who plays in midfield. I'd be inclined to bring Keita back in for Henderson.

    Haven’t enjoyed playing Spurs in the last few years but I think we should definitely be looking to get at least a point out of this. We’re in a much better position defensively than last seasons game at Wembley. I would bring back Keita into midfield.

    My brother supports Spurs and he was under the impression they had a bit of a hoodoo over us in the last 6 or 7 years. Turned out we have lost only 2 or 3 of the last 20 meetings.

    It’s actually about 6 losses in last 20 with us winning 8/9.
    Still great success for us

    Yeah I know in reality we actually have a decent record against them but I always have this niggling feeling in the build up to playing them they can get a result. Have a buddy who’s a Spurs fan and he’s dreading it thinking we’ll run riot. Definitely think we can get a result there not sure it’ll be too one sided though

    Back 5 and front 3 pick themselves. After that fir me it's Milner, Keita and either Gini or Henderson

    I’d go with Wijnaldum Milner and Keita

    Hope we come out of the blocks in 5th year

    Alli has pulled out of the England squad through injury. No doubt he'll be fit for this game!

    In one of our toughest games of the season, I’d be shocked not to see our full strength front 3 start.

    Midfield is 3 from 4, Keita has the xfactor in there but happy for any of the 4 starting tbh.

    Alli being out would be a bonus, any word on lloris?
